Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams make little noise vs. Pats


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams barely made any noise Friday night against the Patriots in Foxboro.

Stewart caught a short pass from Cam Newton and found an opening for a 20-yard gain in the first quarter. It was his only grab of the night. He took four handoffs for 11 yards. Williams was not targeted in the passing game and finished with nine rushing yards on five carries, averaging only 1.8 yards per attempt.

Frustrated DeAngelo Williams questions Panthers' offseason


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will stand with his team through thick and thin but admitted to NFL Network on Thursday that he's concerned about their future after letting their top four receivers go this offseason. Williams said he'll miss the leadership of Steve Smith and the entire receiving corps' knowledge of the offense but is fearful for what might happen to the Panthers run game. 

"I just don't want to see eight, nine guys in the box week in and week out because we're working on our timing," Williams said. 

With Cam Newton on the shelf until training camp and the Panthers fielding a new receiving corps, the clock is ticking on Carolina's offense getting on the same page. 


LaCanfora: Panthers could cut DeAngelo Williams


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) The Panthers could part ways with running back DeAngelo Williams this offseason, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

LaCanfora reports that Williams has a cap hit of $6 million, and the Panthers could save $2 million in cap space if they cut Williams. Carolina still has Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert under contract.

Williams had 201 carries for 843 yards and three touchdowns and 26 catches for 333 yards and a touchdown in 2013


Panthers rushers can't get anything going


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) The Panthers rushers couldn't get anything going against San Francisco.

Mike Tolbert was the most effective of the bunch, picking up 20 yards on eight carries. Tolbert has been a short-yardage threat all season, but could not convert his chances during the game. DeAngelo Williams was used even less, with just five carries. He finished with 13 yards. Neither played a role in the passing game.


Fumble ruins day for DeAngelo Williams


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams played well in Week 17 at Atlanta, but a fumble put a damper on his overall production.

Williams had 10 carries for 33 yards and two catches for 75 yards. But on his 56-yard reception, Williams lost a fumble at the end of the run.

The Panthers now have a week off after winning the NFC South and wrapping up the No. 2 seed in the NFC. They will next play in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.


DeAngelo Williams ending season on high note


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/26/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams heads into his Week 17 matchup at Atlanta playing well, and we expect him to end the regular season on a high note.

Since Jonathan Stewart (knee) went down in Week 14 we’ve seen Williams take over. He has 34 Fantasy points in his past two games against the Jets and New Orleans with a touchdown in each game. This is the second year in a row Williams is closing the season strong since he scored at least 11 Fantasy points in three of his final four games in 2012.

Williams struggled against the Falcons in Week 9 with 13 carries for 42 yards and two catches for 12 yards when Stewart was active, but he scored in the three previous meetings with Atlanta. And the Falcons have allowed a running back to score or rush for 90 yards in nine games in a row.

We consider Williams a solid No. 2 Fantasy running back this week. If he continues to play like he has the past two games he will reward Fantasy owners with another solid performance.


DeAngelo Williams finds the end zone Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams managed to find the end zone Week 16.

Williams didn't do much with 11 of his carries, but broke off a big 43 yard run in the second quarter. He finished with 12 carries for 67 yards. Williams also caught one pass, but did not gain any yards. Williams will take on the Falcons Week 17.


DeAngelo Williams an average play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is an average play Week 16 against the Saints.

New Orleans has been about league-average against opposing runners, allowing them to average 16.43 Fantasy points per game. Through 14 games, the team has given up 10 rushing touchdowns. When the two teams met earlier in the year, Williams rushed for 52 yards on 13 carries. 

Williams continues to get the most work on the team, but Mike Tolbert has been a constant thorn in his side. When the team gets near the goal line, Tolbert gets the majority of the work. Due to the lack of touches at the goal line, Williams is probably not a strong Fantasy play Week 16 against the Saints.


DeAngelo Williams comes down with first TD reception


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams turned in another dominant performance as he scored his first receiving touchdown of the season Sunday against the Jets in Week 15.

Williams caught a short screen pass from Cam Newton and worked his way down the sidelines for a 72-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He finished the game with 168 yards of total offense, logging 81 yards on 15 carries (5.4 yards per carry) and 87 yards on three receptions with one touchdown in a 30-20 victory.

Williams has rushed for 133 yards on 28 carries (4.8 yards per carry) over his last two games. He'll look to keep rolling at home in a difficult matchup against the Saints in Week 16. He was limited to only 52 yards on the ground against the Saints in Week 14.

DeAngelo Williams could be held in check vs. Jets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) With Jonathan Stewart sidelined with an injury, Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will look to shoulder the load heading into Week 15 at home against the Jets.

Williams rushed for 52 yards on 13 carries in Week 14 against the Saints. He has been held out of the end zone over his last three games and has been held under 55 yards in each of his last seven games.

Williams may not have any luck this week, especially since he'll face a New York defense that has allowed only 82.6 yards per game on the ground, which is the second fewest allowed this season. Consider him a low-end starting option for Week 15.

DeAngelo Williams returns to lead Panthers in rushing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who missed Week 13 with a quad injury, led the team with 13 carries for 52 yards in the loss at New Orleans. It was the most carries he'd received since getting 13 vs. Atlanta in Week 9.

Williams was targeted twice, catching an 11-yard pass. He'll play the Jets in Week 15.


Panthers' running backs ready to go


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps), Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (knee) are active for the game at New Orleans after being listed as probable on the injury report. They’ll split carries in Carolina’s run-heavy attack.

DeAngelo Williams gets the start Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will start Week 14 against the Saints. 

Williams has been battling a quadriceps injury this week, but was upgraded to full practice Friday. Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert are also probable, so Williams should see his usual workload. 


The Panthers best running back in Week 14 will be ...


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/6/2013) The Panthers head into Week 14 at New Orleans with all three of their running backs expected to be healthy in Mike Tolbert, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. But can you trust any of them in the Fantasy playoffs?

Williams missed Week 13 against Tampa Bay with a quad injury, but he's expected to return against the Saints. And Stewart, despite missing practice time this week with an ankle injury, is also expected to face New Orleans. Of the three, Tolbert is the only running back for the Panthers to consider in Fantasy play. The other two are just too inconsistent to trust.

Tolbert has scored at least eight Fantasy points four times in his past seven games. Stewart has struggled since making his debut in Week 9 with six Fantasy points or less the past five games. And Williams has six Fantasy points combined in his past two games.

Now, all three running backs have a good history against New Orleans, and the Saints have allowed nine touchdowns to running backs this season and nine to reach double digits in Fantasy points. But Tolbert would have the best chance to score of this trio, and he should be considered a flex option.

Consider Williams and Stewart just options in deeper leagues, but we'd bench them in Week 14 if possible.


DeAngelo Williams limited Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams was limited in practice Thursday.

Williams has been dealing with a quadriceps injury, but was able to play through it Week 13. Jonathan Stewart was held out Thursday, so the team is dealing with two injured backs at the moment.


DeAngelo Williams returns, Jonathan Stewart sits


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who missed Week 13 with a quad injury, returned to practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's showdown in New Orleans. Fellow running back Jonathan Stewart sat out.

However, reports the Charlotte Observer, the team is probably just being cautious with Stewart following his offseason ankle surgeries.


DeAngelo Williams expected to practice Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams sat out Week 13 vs. Tampa Bay because of a quadriceps injury, but Monday coach Ron Rivera said he expects Williams to practice Wednesday. Next up for Carolina is a key NFC South showdown with New Orleans Week 14.

DeAngelo Williams a no-go Week 13


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, is inactive for Week 13 against the Buccaneers. He was unable to practice all week because of a quadriceps injury.

Jonathan Stewart will start in Williams' place, though Mike Tolbert could also get extra work.


DeAngelo Williams questionable Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is questionable Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

Williams has been dealing with a quad injury. He was unable to practice all week due to the injury, and will be a game-time decision.


DeAngelo Williams unable to practice all week


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has been unable to practice all week , according to the Charlotte Observer

Williams is dealing with a quadriceps injury. If he's unable to go, Jonathan Stewart would be looking at more playing time. 


DeAngelo Williams in a muddled backfield situation


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has not been the same player since Jonathan Stewart re-entered the fold in Week 9, scoring just one touchdown over four games and producing his two lowest rushing totals (14 yards in Week 11, and 31 yards in Week 12).

Week 13 brings a matchup against the Bucs, who have allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Now add, on top of this already-tough matchup, the fact that Williams has to contend with a fellow running back (Stewart), a run-happy quarterback (Cam Newton has 50-plus rushing yards in three of his last five games) and a touchdown vulture (Mike Tolbert) complicating the backfield.

Williams can be left on the bench in most formats. As long as Newton, Stewart, and Tolbert are in the mix, he's not going to have much Fantasy value.

DeAngelo Williams splits the workload in Week 12


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams led the team in carries in Week 12 against the Dolphins, but didn't do much with his workload in a 20-16 win.

Williams had 10 carries, but finished second on the team with 31 yards on the ground. He added two catches for 16 yards, while being targeted three times in the passing game.

Williams' 10 carries were his highest total in three games, as the Panthers continue to split carries in the backfield. Carolina host the Buccanneers in Week 13. 


DeAngelo Williams heads into good matchup with uncertain role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams' stock has taken a hit in recent weeks, and even a solid matchup against the Dolphins in Week 12 might not be enough to make him a trustworthy Fantasy option.

Williams has fallen below double-digit touches in each of the last two games, a bad trend and one that doesn't seem particularly likely to change. The Dolphins are vulnerable against the run, allowing 21.8 Fantasy points per game to opposing backs, but Williams' role in the offense makes it very difficult to rely on him.

Running back is a tough position for Fantasy owners to fill, so Williams is still useful as a roll-of-the-dice for Week 12 given his matchup. But, he is a very risky Fantasy start this Sunday.  


DeAngelo Williams held to 25 total yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams ran six times for 14 yards and caught two of three targets for 11 yards in the win over New England. It was the third time in four games Williams received eight or fewer carries.

He'll visit Miami in Week 12.


Trends working against DeAngelo Williams


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2013) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams scored his second touchdown last week on an impressive 27-yard run in which he broke three tackles. But the score only masked some discouraging trends.

Williams saw eight carries, five fewer than Jonathan Stewart. Williams has 73 carries the past six games after getting 62 totes in the first three. With Stewart's carries rising and Mike Tolbert and Cam Newton siphoning goal-line touches, Williams is no more than a weak flex play.

Consider other options Week 11 vs. the Patriots.
